Reservations are now being accepted for dates this fall at the Moxy East Village, the 13-story, 286-room hotel from the Marriott brand here on 11th Street between Third Avenue and Fourth Avenue...
Oct. 6 is the first day for any availabilities ...
Here's hotel info from a recent news release:
Conceived by Rockwell Group as a vertical timeline, each floor of the hotel draws inspiration from a different era in East Village history, from the earliest settlers to the punk era to today. Moxy East Village offers 286 design-driven bedrooms, co-working spaces, tech-savvy amenities, and cultural programming that reflects the richly diverse fabric of the neighborhood.
The various rooms include walk-in rain showers, "retro" telephones and "personal screen casting technology" (aka Netflix, Pandora, etc.).
As for drinking and dining, as previously reported, Tao Group is the food and beverage operator and the Lightstone Group's partner at the Moxy East Village. Plans include a lobby bar and café, a 2,600-square-foot rooftop bar and a French-Mediterranean restaurant from chef Jason Hall.
... and here's the most recent hotel rendering...
...and what it replaced...

The foundation work got underway here in August 2017. Workers demolished the five residential buildings that stood here in the fall of 2016.
Previously on EV Grieve:
At the rally outside 112-120 E. 11th St.
6-building complex on East 10th Street and East 11th Street sells for $127 million
Preservationists say city ignored pitch to designate part of 11th Street as a historic district
Permits filed to demolish 5 buildings on 11th Street to make way for new hotel
New building permits filed for 13-story Moxy Hotel on East 11th Street across from Webster Hall
Heartbreaking to see those buildings - murdered !
Thanks Moxie for giving us a snapshot of the things millennials will supposedly get excited about although I'm sure your market research will be proven wrong. Thank you Mayor De Blasio for killing my belief of what a "progressive" city government is suppose to be.
Fixed the text: "from the earliest settlers to the punk era to today's technofascism."
That DiBlasio can install surveillance pods up and down the avenues without protest is just a sad statement for the state of this city's political sophistication.
how many nyc hotels can accommodate 4 people and have bunk beds?
sounds like a frat house to me.
it is shameful that this so called "hotel" replaced stable decent and permanent and housing.
So: Long-term tenants displaced and a neighborhood destabilized that bit more due to the destruction of those lovely old buildings - and for what? For something that caters to the most transient of transients: young people who want to party & puke in someone else's "cool" neighborhood.
I personally hope this hotel is a complete flop.
Nice to see Marriott, owned by nice tee-totalling Mormons, making sure that their guests at the Moxy can access booze around the clock. Isn't that called hypocrisy? Isn't it against their religion to encourage drinking alcohol?
Just call it the Boozy Hotel and have done.
What a shame the Mayor let five buildings with stabilized units get demolition so his supporter at the Lighthouse Group who he appointed to the EDC could build this monstrosity. With the Tech Hub coming too, ugh
Book a room? There are prisons with more personality.
Bunk beds? Oh yeah, that'll attract a high-class crowd!
I wonder what the bedbug problem at the Moxy will be like?
Moxy may show us new depths of young / drunk / stupid behavior that will perhaps make NYU students seem like Quakers.
IMO, it's unforgivable that De Blasio sold out this entire formerly-stable neighborhood & allowed it to be downgraded to a drunkateria for young transients.
Obviously there has been much chatter about how young people are progressive, tend to favor socialism, are anti-corporation, care about the environment and climate change...
I don't get it - I don't see that millennials (and younger cohort) are at all.
Based on NYC (and elsewhere)seems to me that millennials fully embrace corporatism and a life style predicated on the exploitation of low income people/workers - phones, Uber, food delivery, chain albeit upscale)food, cheap clothes at H&M, happily gentrifying neighborhoods in their new luxury apartments etc.
Check out NY Times article by Andy Newman on food delivery )
Nor does there seem to be a huge concern about the environment. Starbucks, SweetGreen, etc are full of young people and the accompanying cup/plate etc trash. At the end of the semester, the street and dorms everywhere are piled up with useable stuff - food, pens, lamps, fridges etc - that students could not be bothered to take with them or at least give to Goodwill.
No thank you. (What a crime this place is...)
Moxy is an architectural eyesore for the East Village.
First of all there are no millennials in college anymore unless they are returning to school after taking a break. But there are no 4 year post highschool millennials in college. Rising seniors in college who went to school at 18 are born in 1998 or so.
Second, millennials habits are driven by stagnating wages. I say this as someone lucky enough to have escaped the 2008 era recession that many of my peers graduated into and have a very good job and income, not someone complaining and whining just to preempt the nonsensical baby boomer laziness insult.
College costs have gone up at twice the rate of inflation for decades. Most of you probably could have gone to school with mediocre grades and a summer job.
Most of you could probably drink at 18. Then you made sure your kids couldn’t go outside because they’d be abducted and couldn’t drink until 21 because they’d have their college prospects dashed. You made childhood extend into adolescence and then when those 18 year olds go to college they are finally free and overdo it. Because you couldn’t let them have what you had.
Not to mention partying hard wasn’t invented by young people. You all going to your parties and festivals and bars weren’t getting wasted with more wholesomeness and purpose.
People are renting forever now. It’s not their fault they don’t want to rent in tenements owned by awful landlords from the 70s. Ubers and phones and the like are just standard fare. You’re lamenting modern technology as a Luddite. The idea that existing in society that was built by older generations makes the new generation responsible is a joke.
I don’t really want to bother continuing because I’m on my phone, but you guys seem to think you represent the youth even as you get old and represent the establishment. You buy into your own BS about the 60s which are over 50 years ago and ultimately accomplished nothing.
@5:41: Well, *I* didn't do any of that, b/c I have not had any children.
BTW, when I was in college, I didn't get drunk or do drugs, b/c I was too busy attending classes AND working to pay my own way through, since my own parents didn't have the money to "assist" me or my siblings financially. How boring was I, right?!
Reminds me of the hotel I stayed at in North Korea.
@11:12pm: BINGO! Exactly: a hotel in North Korea!
Shame on Di Blasio and his team for blocking landmarking of the previous building to allow this piece of dreck. This mock-progressive city government is all about business and real estate and does *not* act in our best interests.
Well said @5:41
Oh, Lord, leave the Millennials alone. No generation fails to furnish its share of drunken college-age dipshits. It's not the Millennials who built this stupid hotel or allowed it to happen.
